Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I covered implicit differentiation, chain rule, log differentiation, and tangent line to curve problems. He was definitely positive, and wants to learn more and get ahead. I showed him a few different methods, but told him that the only way to get better and faster at differentiating is by practice."
"The student and I covered limits problems. Because the trigonometry functions were very advanced, and I did not see the problems in advance, we will revisit these problems on Monday after she has sent them to me and I have some time to work them out on my own."
"The student and I covered logarithmic differentiation, implicit differentiation, and the chain rule. We did problems together that were lengthy and difficult, but he managed to follow. He needed help a bit with implicit differentiation, which is a concept his class hasn't covered yet."
"The student and I covered the work that he had completed in class during the week and began to work on related rates. We reviewed implicit differentiation and worked through a critical thinking problem that demonstrated the value of simplifying equations prior to differentiation. We also worked through 4 related rates problems, and I explained the basic strategy for related rates including the identification of known variables and what variables are needed."
"The student and I covered vertical and horizontal asymptotes, factoring polynomials, and finding imaginary roots and zeros of polynomial equations. The biggest challenge was factoring polynomials of degree three or higher, so we went over a few techniques to accomplish this."
"The student and I did an overall review to prepare for her upcoming test. We reviewed limits and solving limits. She understood all the material. We worked mostly on solving intrinsic functions. She feels great about her upcoming quiz. We went over her review material, and she had more to study from. "
